SWTOR a terrible game? thanks for the laugh. Why can't people just say "It's a good game, just not my thing". I also don't like GW2, for me it's one of the most boring MMO's i've played. Yet i don't come here saying "this game is garbage".

You want to know what's terrible?! I'll tell you, it's the MMO community. A bunch of spoiled brats who can't see anything improving or growing with time. 

+1 for the real truth.

Because we would be lying. Our original statement is correct.

In the end we are all human with our own opinions, likes, dislikes and desires. No one MMO is going to win everyone's hearts. So theoretically every game will have fanbois and haters cause we all want something tailored to our own specific gaming fetishes.

I for one enjoyed SWTOR during open beta but learned to hate it shortly after the first month of launch. I also endured the same disappointment with GW2 thinking it was going to replace my much missed DAoC. Honestly, I just wish game developers would make niche games instead of trying to please every single person and end up with a giant heap of crap for an MMO that no one likes.

Where did 2/3rds of that $500 million budget go? Oh - now we now. Or, now we've been reminded.

 

Imagine if they focused on putting that money into the game?

lol. I find it humorous that some people still blindly defend this game. Roughly 2 million people quit and is going FTP faster than 95% of any other MMO's released to date, pack that ontop of the 400 million budget, its just unfathomable how people cant get over their pride and admit they paid top dollar for a sub par, utter and complete shit game like an idiot.

People seem keen to dismiss the other candidates, and though it is indeed in-keeping with Occ's razor to see them as the reason SWTOR won anything, one does have to ask questions about who gets to choose these other candidates; certainly the judges and EA's own reputation needs to be taken into account.

 

Also last year Rift won many awards, a game many would say was mediocre, but there wasn’t much competition then either, and before that Star Trek Online was MMO of the year on various sites, so thin was the competition.

 

One point I wish to make, for me at least Glitch disserved some recognition; it is a very nice little game and innovates far beyond any other mmo nominated.

It is reasons like this that I uninstalled SWTOR and BF3 and purged Origin from my computers. I will never touch anything having to do with EA again. Let them survive off of their console sports franchises if they want.

I don´t get people like this. EA is a freakin´ game distributor, those EA haters have a serious problem with their boycot attitude.

(Which I think is nothing but Internet acting and they buy EA distributed stuff anyway from multiple studios)

You behave like a kid telling court the big bad man in black from EA came to your house and hit you with a baseball bat and kidnapped your mommy.

Sheesh...

Are you refering to the company that recently tried to strong arm Nintendo into making its entire new online network Origin exclusive?

Only on these forums will someone be accused for blindly defending a game when they're really just playing a game they like. There's a lot of white knights on these boards, but the above is the worst imo.
